SPECIAL FOR ALL MY GIRLS ;)
If you wanna be a fashion designer, live in Egypt, & less than 18/17 years old, then you’re the one I’m looking for to tell you what you won’t know simply by dreaming of that. If your start was strong & good enough that ll give you more confidence until you reach your goal. I won’t tell you how to be a shinning star but I’ll give you some of what can make you a shinning star.
My 1st piece of advice is to never ever tell yourself I’m unlucky I won’t make it, never think like that, think like a professional be the master of your own game.
It starts so simple:
1st. Sewing is it, you gotta master that in every possible way then try to learn from an expert in your vacations by working with any tailor. That ll teach you the tricks of sewing & you don’t know when you might need them.
2nd. Cloth. You must be aware of every cloth type in this world if you wanna design fashion, whats cheap whats super high, whats good whats bad, what types you ll find here & what you’ll find only there. Just get your hands on every piece of information you find & also you can learn more by selling cloth, reading books, online search, or working in a boutique.
3rd. It’s time for art to shape your talent & creativity. Learn how to sketch figures, clothes, & models, you can’t be a fashion designer without this one so MASTERING it is your goal. So get the basics & use school drawing classes, internet, books, or someone’s help to get it. *Remember it won’t be in a day, everything ll take time but ll help you.
4th. Now it’s your time to show of a little bit by a design of yours, draw it, sew it, & be proud of what you did no matter how weird it might look in the 1st try it’s still a hard work that needs your own self respect. It’s not easy to reach this point so keep trying & trying.
5th. Here is you most important goal ever, college. Learning is something very very important to any great fashion designer & it might sound boring but a must to reach your goal it’ll be just like not eating unhealthy junk food to lose weight. Remember to kick off your career professionally you always ll need learning.
6th. Now your are ready to start, but take it slow at 1st even if you can afford a business of your own try to work for a designer 1st to know how the business is going around you & that ll add to your experience + learning too.
Sawing & learning all the things you needed can give you with time a good income so if you can’t join [for Egypt] a governmental college or course use that money to join another program ’cause yes you can afford it with all your hard work, keep this B plan ready & don’t be ashamed of using it ’cause if it’s gonna say anything about you it’ll be, I’m mature I’m strong & independent.
Hope I helped someone, you can leave a comment with your question or opinion & that post was written earlier but my exams came & I’m just sorry for being late :)
